  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Petermann glacier in Greenland derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat data acquired between 16/08/1991 and 01/06/2010. It provides components of the ice velocity and the magnitude of the velocity and has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 500m grid spacing. Image pairs with a repeat cycle of 1 to 35 days are used. The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) direction of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. The product was generated by GEUS (Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland).

  • This dataset provides the Gravitational Mass Balance (GMB) product derived from the GRACE satellite instrument, by DTU-Space. The data consists of two products, a mass change time series for the Greenland Ice Sheet and individual basins, and mass trend grids for 5-year periods. The mass change time series contains the mass change (with respect to a chosen reference month) for all of the Greenland Ice Sheet and each individual drainage basin. For each month (defined by a decimal year) a mass change in Gt and its associated error (also in Gt) is provided. The mass trend grid product is given in units of mm water equivalent per year. Mass balance is an important variable to understand glacial thinning and ablation rates to enable mapping glacier area change. The time series allows the longer term comparison of trends whereas the mass trend grids provide a yearly snapshot which can be further analysed and compared across the data set.

  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Jakobshavn Isbrae glacier in Greenland, generated from Sentinel-1 SAR data acquired from 11/10/2014 and 02/06/2016. It has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. Data files are delivered in NetCDF format at 250m grid spacing in North Polar Stereographic projection (EPSG: 3413). The horizontal velocity components are provided in true meters per day, towards the EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) directions of the grid.

  • This data set is part of the ESA Greenland Ice sheet CCI project. The data set provides surface elevation changes (SEC) for the Greenland Ice sheet derived from SARAL-AltiKa for 2013-2017. This new experimental product of surface elevation change is based on data from the AltiKa-instrument onboard the France (CNES)/Indian (ISRO) SARAL satellite. The AktiKa altimeter utilizes Ka-band radar signals, which have less penetration in the upper snow. However, the surface slope and roughness has an imprint in the derived signal and the new product is only available for the flatter central parts of the Greenland ice sheet. The corresponding SEC grid from Cryosat-2 is included for comparison. The algorithm used to devive the product is described in the paper “Implications of changing scattering properties on the Greenland ice sheet volume change from Cryosat-2 altimetry” by S.B. Simonsen and L.S. Sørensen, Remote Sensing of the Environment, 190,pp.207-216, doi:10.1016/j.rse.2016.12.012. The approach used here corresponds to Least Squares Method (LSM) 5 described in the paper, in which the slope within each grid cell is accounted for by subtraction of the GIMP DEM; the data are corrected for both backscatter and leading edge width; and the LSM is solved at 1 km grid resolution (2 km search radius) and averaged in the post-processing to 5 km grid resolution and with a correlation length of 20 km.

  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Hagen glacier in Greenland, derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat data acquired between 26/08/1991 and 7/5/2010. It provides components of the ice velocity and the magnitude of the velocity, and has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 500m grid spacing. Image pairs with a repeat cycle of 6 to 35 days are used. The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) direction of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. The product was generated by GEUS (Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland).

  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Upernavik region in Greenland between 1992-2010, and has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The data consists of an ice velocity time series derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1/2, ASAR and PALSAR data acquired between 02-01-1992 and 22-08-2010. It provides components of the ice velocity and the magnitude of the velocity. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E). The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards the EASTING(x) and NOTHING(y) directions of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. Please note that the previous versions of this product provided the horizontal velocities as true East and North velocities. Both a single NetCDF file (including all measurements and annotation), and separate geotiff files with the velocity components are provided. The product was generated by GEUS. For further information please see the Product User Guide (v2.0). Please note - this product was released on the Greenland Ice Sheets download page in June 2016, but an earlier product (also accidentally labelled v1.1) was available through the CCI Open Data Portal and the CEDA archive until 29th November 2016. Please now use the later v1.1 product.

  • This dataset provides an ice velocity map for the whole Greenland ice-sheet for the winter of 2015-2016, derived from Sentinel-1 SAR data acquired from 01/10/2015 to 31/10/2016, as part of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The ice velocity map is provided at 500m grid spacing in North Polar Stereographic projection (EPSG: 3413). The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING(vx) and NORTHING(vy) direction of the grid, and the vertical displacement (vz), derived from a digital elevation model is also provided.
